"Once we clearly acknowledge the soul, we can learn to hear it's cries. - Dallas Willard, Renovation Of The Heart."

It takes courage to pursue our dreams. It takes time and patience to unearth buried treasure. But I believe with all my heart that we must do both.

nesting









getting ready for cooler days and evenings

pulling the furniture closer together

gathering favorite books for reading by the fireplace

getting out warm comfy throws and pillows

love your home Mar, you have a way with putting it all together that is so inviting, so you. And you're art pieces just sing off those walls, it's amazing how in harmony everything in your surroundings is with the essence of who you are.

I've been away for awhile. It's nice to come back and see this colorful post. Autumn is my favorite time of year, too, although it's still summer out here. I have to wait a few more weeks for that nesting feeling.

Bevie said...

hehehe I agree with Mystele, but I will be nesting there in 2 days won't I? hehehe!!! You have always been a creative person doing what you just finished in that room! I suspect it doesn't end there...you have so many awesome rooms in that old house that loves it when you give them your creative touch...(((hugs)))

Oh, Mary! I LOVE seeing your home! It's all I can do not to go make a granny square pillow for my living room, right now!

BTW, I was in your neck of the woods earlier this week. We went to Blue Ridge for the long weekend, and we came back through Woodstock so I could go to the Blick store in Roswell. I was thinking of you! :-)
